Bdr James Taitua (right) and unidentified gunner, 161 Battery RNZA, pictured in Vietnam, circa 1966-1967. Both men are wearing black cravats or scarfs embroidered with a fern-leaf. The scarves were adopted as a way of distinguishing the New Zealand battery from other foreign units serving in Vietnam.
